Zero Waste Vashon is sponsoring a talk by David Yarrow at the Land Trust on Sun., Oct. 29th, from 2 to 4 pm. Yarrow’s topic is Creating Fully Fertile Soil.
As an earth activist, he has taught workshops and university courses and written about carbon-smart biological agriculture. He has researched soil amendments over decades, including rock dust, sea minerals, and bio-char. He saw how bio-char can regenerate soils and mitigate global warming.
His diverse efforts include starting community gardens, natural food buying clubs, food coops, a whole grain bakery, a tofu business, and contributing to the national standards for organic farming certification. He also founded and ran Wellspring: The Syracuse Center for Self-Healing which works with patients with environmental illnesses using natural foods cooking and holistic nutrition.
Join us for a fascinating afternoon with David Yarrow!
